The Building Sustainable Security conference will be held Saturday, November 21, 2015, from 8:30 am to 5:30 p.m., at Harvard Law School, Wasserstein Hall, 1585 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, in the Milstein Conference Center on the 2nd floor.

Directions to Venue and Parking Information

Wasserstein Hall, Harvard Law School
Wasserstein Hall, Harvard Law School

Wasserstein Hall is a large modern building at the corner of Massachusetts Ave. and Everett St., Cambridge. Click on the map above for locations of Wasserstein Hall and the MBTA station.

It’s a 10-minute walk from the Harvard Square MBTA station, and we encourage use of the “T” for those able to access the Red Line.  (Note that buses will replace Red Line service from JFK/UMass to Braintree on the 21st.)  From Harvard station, either walk north through Harvard Yard to the Law School, or take the Church Street exit from the MBTA station, and walk north on Massachusetts Avenue to the Law School.   You could also take the 77 bus from Harvard MBTA station; get off at the first stop (Waterhouse St.) and continue walking up Massachusett Ave.  Harvard Law School’s directions include a map of the Law School area and driving directions.

Commercial parking in the Harvard Square vicinity is plentiful. The most affordable option may be the University Place Garage ($10 with validation from a local merchant.  There are parking meters along Massachusetts Ave., and they are closer than the Harvard parking garage, but can only be filled for 2 hours at a time.

The Harvard University Parking system is affordable and a block and a half from our conference venue, but can only be used by establishing an online account in advance and pre-printing your permit. You will need to select “Visitor to Campus” as the Department, and “7700” as the code. You will also need to have your license plate number to hand, be prepared to supply contact information, and know that the “52 Oxford St” garage is the nearest parking location to select. The $7 fee can be paid with a credit card.
